In 2009, a small group of friends with a shared love for Haiti and its people began focusing on a simple question: What does real long-term change look like for the medical community of Cap Haitien, Haiti? From that starting point, the Espwa Foundation was born. Espwa means “hope” in Haitian Creole.
The Espwa team has since grown into an all-volunteer partnership of Haitians and Americans who catalyze positive change by empowering the medical leaders and big dreamers in Cap Haitien.
Though the medical community is still a primary focus, we’ve broadened our scope to empower farmers, families, and small businesses, as they’re all woven into the fabric of a stronger ‘Ayiti.’
The Espwa Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to serving our brothers and sisters in Cap Haitien, Haiti. Check out the About Us page to learn more about our organization.
